Your tables can still reflect the essence of Thanksgiving with beautiful linens, stemware and floral accents.

The autumn season is in full swing, and that means plenty of opportunities for seasonal entertaining in your home. The design experts at Marco Island Florist have some great tips for fall decorating and tablescapes that will make your fall gatherings everything you want.
Keep it relaxed by adding elements that are personalized and low-key or keep it a little less-than-perfect, allowing your guests to relax and enjoy the evening.
Don’t let the flowers stay at the center of the table. Add one bloom in a bud vase to each place setting. It will tie the entire look together and guests will love the extra-special touch just for them.
Try adding a bit of shimmer to your fall table for a glossy finish. A gold mesh runner or mirrored serving trays give off just enough shine to feel festive. Read More about Center Your Table In Style »
